Be Real. Be Honest. Be Authentic.
A native of the great state of Michigan, John Trabbic is a Catholic worship artist and speaker who desires to lead others to be real, honest and authentic in their relationship with God, especially during times of worship.
John is a Catholic Musician who grew up in the beautiful state of Michigan, where he was raised with his four siblings on a farm. Growing up, John always had a passion and love for music. While in high school, John was the drummer and lead singer in a rock band. Looking back, he can see how God was already planting the seeds for his future in leading worship.
John went on to college at Franciscan University where he played NCAA basketball. Basketball was his focus in college, but an unexpected ACL injury during his second season ultimately led to the end of his college basketball career. It was after this injury that John started to become more involved in leading worship and realized his love for praying with music. God turned the tragedy of the end of John’s basketball career into a triumph for His Kingdom.
Since college, John has used his musical talents to lead others to a deeper encounter with Christ. John felt God calling him to share his original music with others, and in 2014 recorded his first EP titled The Journey. The Journey focuses on the scripture passage from Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for woe, to give you a future and a hope.” Since the release of the EP, John has been blessed to lead worship for thousands of people, sharing his music and mission with others.
In 2018, John again felt a strong call from God to share more of his music, and prayed that God would direct him. Through the help and support of many, John was able to travel to Nashville in May of 2019. There he recorded his second Album In Awe, which was released on November 1st, 2019. This album is six honest prayers that John hopes will serve as a worship aid for the entire church, and lead all people to be Be Real, Honest, and Authentic in the ways that they pray and encounter God.
John now resides in Toledo, OH with his wife and two children.
